A new rumor from Kessel Run Transmissions suggests Ahsoka Tano and Sabine will appear on-screen together in exactly one episode. Not only that, but the YouTube channel even goes further to say Commander Rex will be making his way to live-action, being the second role Temuera Morrison will play this year.
As evidenced by the events of the first season, the Star Wars world was expanded mightily while dropping tidbits here and there about certain characters, while never taking the focus off Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and The Child. That seems to be the case this time around as well, with Ahsoka and Sabine — also a Mandalorian — showing up momentarily and dropping some breadcrumbs for a future property.
In the case of the reporting Kessel Run Transmissions, that future property is a sequel series to Star Wars Rebels, rumored to be due out right around the time the second season of The Mandalorian drops this October. Lucasfilm has yet to confirm the sequel series is actually in development, and the scoopers remind listeners the production delays caused by the coronavirus shutdowns could have impacted the release. According to the initial report, longtime Lucasfilm executive Dave Filoni is also heavily involved in the animated follow-up.
Star Wars Celebration is still scheduled for this August, though most other conventions for the remainder of the year have been canceled. Should the show stay on course, it stands to reason a series announcement could take place there.
